Jack, You're Dead

Nothing of any real worth on youtube or multimedia-wise elsewhere for Louis Jordan. I had to make my own karaoke iMovie and then convert it. A time consuming, tedious job, but procastination is preferred to dealing with other things. I'm proud of the results. Great slanguage possibilities. Jordan's link to Harlem? His first real gig (1938) was at the Elk's Rendezvous Club on 484 Lenox Ave. He named his group the "Elk's Rendezvous Five." Later it was changed to his famed "Tympany Five."
